Staggeringly Powerful As sharp and shocking a sermon as any I've read by Spurgeon. Incredibly simple, totally fixed to the text in Jonah and perfect for preaching to sleepy saints and sinners. His arguments are amongst his strongest.
I'm not convinced though that Christians should be seeking to tell the gospel at every opportunity, come what may, so that we won't be guilty of the blood of others. In the New Testament, the emphasis seems to be a lot, dare I say it, more relaxed, or winsome. In the New Testament, there seems to be a lot more emphasis for Christians to shine their loving lives before others (Matthew 5:16), living godly lives (1 Peter 2:16) and, when opportunity comes, when we are asked about it, giving a reason for the hope we have (1 Peter 3:15). I'm concerned that someone who takes to heart everything Spurgeon has said will be moved to be very foolish and put people off Christ. It's good to be zealous, and to preach zealously in a pulpit. But I don't think your everyday Christian attitude should be, 'I'd better tell so and so about the gospel and do so quick, or else I'll be guilty of their soul'. I think if we think like that we'll cause more harm than good. What do you think?
Great Message! Maybe I recognize pride in others because as the saying goes, "like knows like." Ouch! Pride comes in many shades and layers. P.S. - I like this reading of the message better than the other one.
Oh, To Pass This On! This is a sermon of blessing, a tract for the ages that I would learn by heart to offer it again and again to the people of my town, to the people of my family, and for the daily need of my own heart. Thank you for sharing this great preacher's words so effectively in this modern time. Your reading voice does his word justice and The Lord once again speaks mightily of the love and grace He offers so freely!!!
Great Sermon! Thank you for this great ministry. As a preacher myself I enjoy good preaching, and I have listened to many gifted preachers over the years, but Spurgeon continues to be the "Prince of Preachers."
Great Sermon! How I would have loved to sat under this great man's outstanding preaching. This was most encouraging at a time when I really, really needed it. I have been encouraged to RUN to Christ in prayer.
Great Sermon! This message showed not the what to do but rather exposed that which I do that I shouldn't I find myself drawn even closer to my Saviour. To love and adore him more,better and with much reverence than I have. Much conviction. Great is the Word of God.
